Grooveyard

 

Lead by Tim Richards, this funky jazz/blues/soul outfit features:

Kathy Wilson - vocals
T-Bone Taylor - guitar
Tim Richards - piano/organ
Jason Rogers - electric bass
Louis Borenius - drums

 

Talented vocalist KATHY WILSON began her singing career at the age of 10 in a North London gospel choir, making a BBC recording 3 years later for a Caribbean songbook. She went on to perform at many famous London venues such as Pizza on the Park and the Bass Clef. Her style combines blues, jazz and soul, with more than a hint of her favourite vocalist Aretha Franklin.

T-BONE TAYLOR is a dynamic guitarist equally at home with styles as diverse as Stevie Ray Vaughan and Charlie Christian. He has played with saxophone giants Dick Heckstall-Smith and Ed Jones, and is also frequently chosen to back visiting American artists such as Champion Jack Dupree, Mojo Buford, and many others... His band The Bop Brothers currently features vocalist Earl Green.

LOUIS BORENIUS, leader of popular London band Coup d'Etat, and JASON ROGERS, funk-master extra-ordinaire with the outrageous 13-piece Mongoose, work as a team to provide the solidest and most exciting grooves possible...
